Project description

The pip distribution package pycoq provides two python packages:

  • serlib

  • pycoq


pycoq is a python library that provides interface to Coq using the serialization coq-serapi


serlib is a python library providing s-expression parser implemented in C++

Install on Linux

Currently we support only the Linux platform.

External dependencies


The pycoq calls opam package manager to install and run the coq-serapi and coq binaries. The pycoq assumes that opam binary of version 2.* is in the $PATH.

On Ubuntu 20.04 install opam with sudo apt-get install opam. See for other systems.


The pycoq calls strace to inspect the building of coq-projects to prepare the context. The pycoq assumes
that strace is in the $PATH.

On Ubuntu 20.04 install strace with sudo apt-get install strace. See for other systems.

Install from github

Assuming python>=3.8 and pip are in your python environment (we recommend to use conda or python venv) to install from github run

pip install git+

Test your setup

From your python environment with pycoq installed run

pytest --pyargs pycoq

Config pycoq

The location of the project directory, debug level and other parameters can be specified in the config file $HOME/.pycoq

Uninstall pycoq

From your python environment with pycoq installed run

pip uninstall pycoq

By default, pycoq uses directory $HOME/.local/share/pycoq to store temporary files such as the opam repository, project files and the logs. To remove the project directory:

rm -fr $HOME/.local/share/pycoq

To remove the config file:

rm $HOME/.pycoq

Using pycoq

For basics see the example tutorial/ and the test scripts in pycoq/tests.

Build pycoq in Docker

Install docker, git clone the source repository and from the directory containing Dockerfile run

docker build -t pycoq:test .

to verify the setup and test of pycoq in docker container on linux
